Award-winning partnerships

NHS organisations working in the city are sharing a trophy, in recognition of the way they work together in the city.

NHS Portsmouth CCG and NHS Solent Trust are the proud recipients of the ‘innovative partnering’ award, given out at the recent HFMA South Central conference in Reading.

The award recognises the successful development of a joint four-year plan between the two organisations, which supports the delivery of the transformation of community and mental health services within a shared financial framework.

CCG’s chief finance officer Michelle Spandley said: “This is a tremendously welcome recognition of the work we are doing with Solent, and I hope that everyone involved is proud of the work we have been doing – they certainly should be.

“The way we have been working together demonstrates a real commitment to transforming and developing services for the benefit of our population.”
